Glendive, Montana, October 24, 2012 - Glendive Medical Center (GMC) was recently recognized as a national recruit of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. "This shows our commitment to our Veterans, and recognizes that our staff understands that the end-of-life care for Veterans is often unique. It's surprising that 25 percent of those who die every year in this country are Veterans," MJ Marx, GMC Home Health/Hospice Manager, said. 

As a recruit, GMC will implement ongoing Veteran-centered education for Hospice staff and volunteers to help improve the care provided to Veterans. By recognizing the unique needs of Veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness, GMC Hospice staff is better able to accompany and guide Veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending. "In cases where there might be some specific needs related to the Veteran's military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, being a part of this campaign will assist us in finding tools to help support these patients and their families," Marx added.
